Subject: PCM pre-emphasis curve removal?
1. a digital or analog transfer from the PCM->DAT?
2. If it was a digital transfer, was the PCM-preemphasis curve removed???
Just curious because while it's an amazing recording, it sounds to me to be overly bright -- which would indicate that the pre-emphasis curve had NOT been removed...
Subject: whoa there!
Annnnyway, these shows feature tight drumming. Jerry's voice is weathered but very much present. The band is coalescing on most songs and the recording quality is top notch.
The soundboard patch in Althea is quite nice. Love the crispness of the drums, harmonic qualities of the keyboards, deepness of bass on that SB. I wonder why so few comments over there...
Subject: I was there too
Subject: One of My Best Ever!
Subject: Great FOB recording
Like most of you, I have a love/hate relationship with the music of the Grateful Dead performed between 1983-1985. This period really begins with the December 1982 Oakland run and ends with Garcia's coma in mid 1986. On one hand, these shows are generally sloppy, unfocused instrumentally and, by 1985, they become barely listenable vocally. On the other hand, the energy and sheer power of the band was only matched by performances in the 60's and never post coma. It seems that Garcia's surrender to the Persian and Phil's introduction of the six string Modulus are the two factors most responsible for the band's sound. Check out the above noted two recordings along with this one and note the evolution of the band's sound in these two or so years.
This performance at Santa Fe has the best of both worlds and is one of the band's most consistent shows of this period.
Subject: Incredible Audience
Subject: this is soooo good sounding...
5 stars on sound. the vocals, the instruments, the thump...it's all good.
